If you want to enjoy outdoor living at its finest, you need to have a clean deck and beautiful landscaping.
Wood decks require a lot of maintenance to keep them looking great.
Even after you’ve pressure-washed the deck, there’s a good chance you’ll find rotted wood, especially if the boards are old and have weathered some storms.
If you want a low-maintenance decking option, the solution is composite decking from Trex. Composite decking, made of wood fiber and plastic, has invisible fasteners and even gaps — best of all, no rotting wood!
And Trex’s RainEscape is an under-deck drainage system that uses a network of troughs and gutters to keep rain, spills and snowmelt from dripping through elevated deck boards, creating a dry space below the deck.
To match a nice deck, you need a great view, and that starts with the right tools to keep your lawn clean.
AMES Tools has plenty of them, too, including:
• Ergo Gel Grip Hand Trowel: perfect for planting flowers in containers and beds — and doing it all comfortably!
• Steel Tine Rake: A clear lawn requires a deep clean — and stray twigs and grass clippings are no match for this rake, which goes deep to clean and aerate.
• Poly Shrub Rake: Its 60-inch handle extends your reach to keep mulch free from leaves and looking fresh!
